GOP presidential candidates double down on anti-Obamacare rhetoric

Even though the GOP caucus in Congress stepped away months ago from its years-long assault on Obamacare, the top contenders for the Republican presidential nod appear to be doubling down.

Almost immediately after the Supreme Court issued its decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act on Thursday, every major Republican presidential candidate decried the ruling and called for the healthcare law to be repealed, replaced or both.

Sen. Marco Rubio

Sen. Ted Cruz

Jeb Bush

Rick Perry

Mike Huckabee

Carly Fiorina

Rick Santorum

Gov. Bobby Jindal
